To my knowledge, I've never signed for a credit purchase on a wireless device.

But maybe that's partly because I've always paid the pizza delivery guy with cash.

Speaking of cash, has anyone noticed lately that a lot of American paper currency just seems *really* grungy? Ugh. So many bills seem filthy and on the verge of disintegration.

If you happen to know that 60% of the currency is contaminated with E. coli bacteria, that makes handling those beat-up bills even ickier.

And, no, I'm not an obsessive 'neat-freak' type of person. I just don't remember American currency being quite this grungy in past years. Maybe it always 'was' though, and somehow I just never noticed.

I 'have' noticed that I always get the grungiest change from McDonald's. Just one more reason not to go there, I guess.
